welcome to HealthcareMagic
The stiffness in neck & vomiting are a sign seen commonly in meningitis but as your child has runny nose & red lesion it could be a bite from some organism in the lake.Please consult a doctor or ER as soon as possible he needs medical attention & investigation to rule out viral meningitis.
Take care.
